Easy Interview
Application

I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Intellectual Ventures in Mar 2020

Interview

Interviewer got me mixed up with another person and insisted that they were right...how bizarre. Interviewer was also 15 minutes late and I had to notify by email to see if they were still on. Very unconventional interview questions and did not followed up properly despite multiple promises. After reading more interviews on here I finally see they were always like this. Stay away.

Interview Questions

  • We are tight knit, and hang out after work. How do you feel about this?

I applied through college or university. The process took 3 months. I interviewed at Intellectual Ventures (Seattle, WA) in Feb 2016

Interview

Applied through HuskyJobs at UW. The first round was on campus. There was 2 30 minute interview with 2 people each. The first one was mostly behavioral. The second one was very technical asking a lot of questions about financial statement. The second round interview is at there office in Bellevue. There 2 was behavioral interviews that was more conversational and an extremely hard excel test. They don't expect you to complete the whole test because they make it impossible. The biggest advice I have is to know what Intellectual Ventures actually does. They are a niche market and they will constantly ask you how does IV work. The IP market is also very unusual, so know about that. Also, ask a lot of questions. They know candidates don't know a lot.But overall, these people are extremely nice, engaging, curious and helpful.

Interview

Applied online, contacted by a consulting recruiter, had a nice conversation about a couple of roles. Was told to expect an update once he talked to the HM. Never heard back recruiter responded tersely after 3rd contact attempt by me. After looking at company reviews on this site, I am not at all surprised. Good riddance.
